Practicing fine motor skills: Wooden game HABA review

Our kids have everything. Literally. If we decide what to buy or not, very important things are the quality and meaningfulness of the toy. In this article I introduce an amazing wooden game Haba.

The principle of the game

Into the holes in the wooden board (4×4 holes) inserts colored blocks. Children put rings on them. Each block belongs to one hole. One ring belongs to one block. There are eight colors in total, each with two blocks and two rings – dark blue, blue, light blue, green, red, yellow, orange, pink.

For whom the toy is intended

The game is suitable for children from 2 to 6 years. Kids practise fine motor skills also colour matching.

Folding options

1. Inserted blocks

Children can put blocks into the holes by color or simply what they like it. This activity is suitable for 18 months old baby

2. Colour combinations

  • The first way: Children put rings on blocks randomly. They can play with colors as they wish.
  • The second way: They insert ring of the same color on the block (for example red to red, blue to blue).
  • The third way: They can play with colours. It means that they could insert the red circle on the yellow block and the yellow circle on the red block
